Happy Monday crafty friends! Today's edition of 3 ways with is focusing on the Sweet Hearts Adhesive Wood Veneers from Altenew.
When I first saw the Veneers I thought they were aimed solely at Scrapbookers but then I got to thinking about how they could be used in my card making. I have used them in many ways recently and narrowing it down to just 3 ways was a nightmare, but lets just go with it...
Ok, so I decided that I had to include a card with one of the veneers left natural. It has such a soft feel and looks perfect teamed up with soft pastels.
I used the leaf burst stencil along with Sunkissed and Pink Pearl ink. I then added a little strip of hearts using the Basic borders stamp set. I found some light peach sequins in my stash that complete the look.
I used Altenew's embossing ink pad and Golden peach embossing powder to colour the Happy veneer. It's as simple as squish, sprinkle and heat!
I added a background using the Sunburst stencil, Firefly and Sunray inks. The smaller sentiments are form the Halftone happy stamp set, I heat embossed them using the Rose gold embossing powder.
Water coloured and Gilded
For my last card I really went to town, I coloured the veneer with the Limeade water color brush marker, once dry I added a distressed gilded effect using gilding flakes.
Look how cool this effect is
The background was made using the Layered Medallion A stencil and Pink Pearl, Sunkissed and Firefly inks. The smaller sentiments are from the Frosted Garden stamp set.
I have also tested out Alcohol markers, Acrylic paint and water colour paint on the veneers and all work beautifully.
